Boise Boba plans its second local outlet.

As we reported, the first opened in February in the Eagle Marketplace development in Meridian. 

What’s Bubble Tea? As described in our earlier story: 

Boba – or bubble – tea, is an iced drink made with tea, milk and “pearls” made from tapioca.  The new shop has developed a millennial-infused lingo – with drink sizes like bestie, selfie and gucci and a variety of “bottoms” including original, poppers and jellies.

The new location is under construction at 212 N. 9th St. in the former Leaf Teahouse location (net to Banana Ink), according to signage.
